A statement from the Broome County Health Department in regard to the spread of coronavirus in school.
(1/21/2021) The Broome County Health Department has not seen spread of COVID-19 within school buildings due to preventative measures in place. Cases remain high in the community from post-holiday spread, but we still believe the safest place for students to be is in school. It is important for school districts to continue screening processes and following New York State guidelines, including mask wearing and distancing.
The Broome County Health Department has seen a higher chance for spread due to community activities or ride sharing. We ask communities to limit these instances, as that will lead to fewer isolations and quarantines.
(PLEASE NOTE: School approved clubs and extra curricular activities are not taking place at this time.)
